Tourism MalaysiaIn order to avoid job duplication with the state agencies in promoting tourist attractions, Tourism Malaysia offices throughout the country will be closed with immediate effect.

 

Tourism and Culture Minister Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said he move was expected to be able to save about RM6 million in cost annually and it could be utilised for other expenses.

 

The closure of the 14 tourism offices, however, did not involve the termination of services of the staff because they would be absorbed into the ministry’s headquarters and other departments.

 

“Although all the Tourism Malaysia offices will be closed, we will create five information offices, namely in Penang for the northern region, Terengganu for the eastern region, Johor for southern region, Sabah at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport, and Sarawak at the Kuching International Airport,” he said.

 

On Jan 14, the ministry announced that at least four Tourism Malaysia offices abroad, namely in New York, the United States; Perth in Australia; Stockholm in Sweden; and Johannesburg in South Africa would be closed with immediate effect following the termination of Malaysia Airlines Bhd services there.
